Writing Scripts That Appeal to A-List Actors
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The reason a film gets made is because a bankable star signs on to the project. These actors and actresses know the power they have and as a result want the best moments in the movie, the best dialogue, and demand the opportunity to play a full range of human emotions.
It’s not uncommon that the protagonist of a film is oftentimes the least interesting character. The reason this occurs is that the hero or heroine has the onerous task of carrying the plot and explaining the exposition. Minor characters don’t have this burden and can easily outshine the star. This is a fatal mistake and will make your screenplay less commercially appealing as a result.

Many of these concepts will not only heighten the commercial possibilities of your screenplay but will enrich your writing as well.
